Beschreibung

One boy. One dragon. A world of adventure.When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds.Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands.

Kritikerstimmen

"It's an impressive start to a writing career that's sure to flourish." (Booklist)
"Doyle's range of accents is perfect for the multiple characters of this epic....On paper Eragon is a sprawling fantasy, filled with obvious nods to Tolkien and too many convenient plot devices. But on audio, it fills the ears with vivid characters, witty dialogue, and nail-biting battle scenes set in a magical world where a beautiful blue dragon and her rider are at the noble center of it all." (AudioFile)
"An impressive epic fantasy." (Publishers Weekly)
"An authentic work of great talent. The story is gripping;...it moves with force." (The New York Times Book Review)

Gute Geschichte - Gut gelesen

Eragon ist eine typische Fantasy-Geschichte, junger Noch-nicht-Held findet Drachenei und muss schließlich die Welt vor dem Bösen retten. Also eigentlich nichts, was man nicht schon einmal irgendwo gelesen hätte. Trotzdem ist diese Geschicte sehr ansprechend und gut geschrieben und man ist gespannt auf den nächsten Teil. Bermekenswerter macht es die Geschichte, dass der Auto erst 15 Jahre alt war, als er sie schrieb!
Für die Geschichte würde ich eigentlich nur 4 Sterne geben, den letzten gebe ich für die unglaubliche gute Umsetzung von Gerard Doyle beim Vorlesen des Buches. Er liest sehr gut, den unterschiedlichen Charakteren werden verschiedene Stimmen und Dialekte zugeordnet, was die Geschichte sehr lebendig macht und den Zuhör-Spaß wirklich erhöht! Auch für non-native speaker sehr gut verständlich..

Just a good book but an excellent audio book!

Eragon by Christopher Paolini is a must have for all who love fantasy, dragons, or even just a good book in bed.

It follows the fashion of the mystical series: Magic, knights and dragons. The plot is as follows, briefed, of course: A boy on the verge of growing into a man discovers something, which will forever change his life - a dragon. When he loses his family, Eragon our hero vows to take up revenge.

The plot is nothing new, to put it nicely, but the narrator keeps this story alive! Each character has its different dialect. You actually think different persons were talking. Additionally the flaws of the prose (lots of telling, incorrect word usage, sentence blunders) of Christopher Paolini - who was only 15 when he wrote this book - are not as obvious in the spoken version.

If you like Tolkien, Harry Potter and so on this is just a book for you and due to the narrator you will receive many hours of fantastic fantasy story telling. The plot is only a 3 to 4 stars but the narrator brings this audio book up to 5 stars.
